Description of this Book

The classic story of the March family, Little Women has been adored for generations. Now in a vibrant new deluxe edition with an introduction by Jane Smiley and a cover by Julie Doucet, the novel follows the lives of four sisters - tomboyish Jo, beautiful Meg, fragile Beth, and romantic Amy - as they come of age while their father is fighting in the Civil War. Since 1868, readers have rooted for Laurie in his pursuit of Jo's hand, cried over the family's tragedy, and dreamed of traveling through Europe with old Aunt March and Amy. In this simple, enthralling tale, Louisa May Alcott has created four of American literature's most beloved women.

Author's Bio

Louisa May Alcott was born on November 29, 1832, in Germantown, Pennsylvania.

The title of Ms. Alcott's first published short story was The Rival Painters: A Tale of Rome (1852), and her first published book was Flower Fables (1854). She died at age 55 on March 6, 1888.
